The Detroit Environmental & Water Justice Alliance is dedicated to the pursuit of social justice – when it comes to clean air, clean water and a just transition to a green energy economy.

We cultivate the leadership of those directly affected by injustice to ignite the power of our communities and shift the balance of power. It is our mission to work together to build the power we need to win the justice and dignity our communities deserve.

It is justice that distribution, recognition, and participation are linked in ways that address the wellbeing of the whole community and our quality life in general when it comes to environmental and water justice. We encourage you to join in on the environmental and water justice movement to help us focus on injustice as a collective experience to fight for hope, justice and dignity for all.
